The skaters are from the ‘Welcome Christmas’ stamp set (view it here).
I saw the reflection technique done by simply stamping a piece of acetate in ‘Going Gray’ ink and then pressing it down to transfer the image in reverse. The gray makes a better reflection and since it isn’t permanent like the Black StazOn (like the skaters are stamped in, so you can wipe off the acetate and use it again).
To view a video on how I did the background sponging technique and masking for snow, click here. What the video doesn’t show is that I created a second mask for the ice pond. By sponging around the edges of the ‘pond’ mask, it creates the last truly ‘white’ area for the ice.
